What To Wear?

I am currently searching for Gemma's first Halloween costume. To be honest with you, I have probably been looking around since late June, the search has just intensified as I realize it is less than a month away. As with everything in life I have been way over-thinking it ( Are pumpkins overdone? Would a ladybug be to cliche'?) and have resolved myself into finding a creative, inexpensive, quality, beautiful costume. Is that so much to ask ? :)

Here are a few that I have found that I really like:

Sushi: I just think this one is very cool and I love the bright orange! Also, the wasabi headband is such a cute detail!

Pebbles and Bam Bam: If only Gemma had a little boy playmate! Adorable. I think the costumes would lose impact without each other though.

Ladybug: So maybe it is a little overdone but I think that ladybugs are popular for good reason, again, super cute. I really like this version of a ladybug costume!

Bunny: I like this because I call Gemma "Honey Bunny" (plus, she looks really good in white!) My only concerns are getting her in her car seat in a bunting and I worry that it might be too Easter-y.

Bee: I really like this one! It looks plain here but the other pictures show a little more of it. Plus, Target had black leggings size 0-3 months in the dollar spot so I could definitely make it wearable.

Officially, I am still looking but leaning towards the bee. Options are so limited for the smallest babies!

Decisions, Decisions!


  1. I did the same thing!! I bought Spencer's first Halloween costume a few weeks after she was born because I was convinced the one I wanted would be sold out before I could buy it!

    I paid a little more than I wanted to, but I LOVED her costume. I even got her costume from the same place last year because they become great dress up costumes and they're very durable, surprisingly.

    I got all of her costumes from Prissy Poofs -

    Her first Halloween she was a Lady Bug Poof and last year she was a Chickee Poof!

    But Chasing Fireflies also has some really cute costumes too.

    Hope this helps :)

  2. I LOVE the last outfit! Cuteness! I have seen some other babies in the tutu outfit and they're simply adorable. Some of the mothers even made the tutus (sp?). I think I am going to try to make an outfit similar to the bee outfit (including the headband) for my daughter's 5th month photo. But I have to see how the funds are looking and how much I can earn online first so I can buy the materials.

    You are so right, options are limited for babies under 6 months in my opinion.

  3. Thanks for the advice!

    I just got her costume and went in a completely different direction!
